Philadelphia, PA

FAMILY
I have four younger brothers back in Philly.

EDUCATION
I graduated from UT San Antonio in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree and I’m currently pursuing a master’s degree at UT Austin.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO YOUR FIELD?
I’m not sure I even have a field yet. I still consider myself a recent graduate, so I think I need more time to experience and explore different opportunities.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WITH CORDILLERA RANCH?
I started September 2012.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ASPECT OF WORKING IN THE HILL COUNTRY?
My favorite part is being surrounded by nature, since I grew up in a city. I get overly excited on my drive to the office when I pass fields with goats and cows.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES/INTERESTS?
I spend nearly every spare minute I have reading. I almost listed my book collection under ‘Family.’ I’m also extremely passionate about music and traveling for concerts. I’ve been all over the world to see my favorite bands on tour.

WHAT BAND HAVE YOU FOLLOWED AROUND THE WORLD?
Hanson.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SPORT?
As a Philadelphian, if I don’t say football I will not be permitted back into the city. (Secretly, I’ve also been getting into soccer lately.)

FAVORITE SPORTING EVENT YOU’VE ATTENDED?
I’m going to preemptively say my favorite sporting event will be on December 29, 2013 when I see the Eagles crush the Cowboys in Arlington!

FAVORITE QUOTE?
“Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.” – Bertrand Russell

FAVORITE MOVIE AND WHY?
28 Days Later, because nothing beats a good horror movie.
